    Hi all... since we are talking about Eddy Current Testing on Chiller Tubes, what's the normal Manufaturer's recommendations when to do this kind of test? Most of my York Centrifugal Chillers are less than 10yrs old, but they run almost 365/7/24 for process cooling. Besides doing our regular PMs on this equipment, we also punch tubes on the condensers once a year during our scheduled Plant shutdown at the beginning of the year. Any suggestion is appreciated.

    We always do 3 years on condensers, 6 years on evaporators. If conditions dictate, you can adjust frequency from there. Had a customer once that did them every year on both barrels - never understood that..........
